and government reform committee. host: good morning. house members have returned to washington with votes slated later today for emergency aid for victims of superstorm sandy. new york is poised to become the first state to act in response to the mass shooting in newtown, connecticut, keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and banning assault weapons. president obama has in hand to the recommendations from joe biden on gun-control and will push for action. the front page of the washington journal says president obama escalates the fight on the w economy. is the debt ceiling negotiable? your thoughts? send us a tweet or post your comment on facebook. you can also send us an e-mail. president obama held his last official news conference of the first term yesterday in the east room of the white house. here's what he had to say on the debt ceiling debate. [video clip] >> republicans and congress have two choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect ransomed in exchange for
on assault weapons. he said, and i'm quoting, it's our attempt to push back on the federal government's ever-increasing encroachment. not only on our personal liberties, but on our state sovereignty. >> reverend sharpton, i'm glad to be here. >> now, let me ask you, do you really think your state bill will trump federal law? >> well, that's part of the point. what we're trying to illustrate here is that the federal government has, systematically, over the years, been on full assault of the second amendment. when you assault the second amend. it's not just the second amendment, you assault the entire bill of rights. that's the broader point that we're trying to draw here is that for years, the bill of rights have been under attack from the federal government for no other reason than power and control. >> now, let me ask you a question. where in the second amendment does it give you the right to do the things that the president announced the other day were executive orders. the president said -- i was there -- that he supports the second amendment. he was not talking about guns. he's talking a
involving in libya, there has been a lack of government control and a huge swath of the region. an explosion of uncontrolled weapons and to some of these groups, we see this in algeria and it should be seen by one campaign from the french fighting to what is going on in algeria. we have had many laws of unintended consequences and the middle east. think of the effort to get the soviets out of afghanistan and what it led to. this is a characteristic of the region, not a characteristic of bad politics. it was good to get rid of gaddafi and the soviets. from the pakistan border to the atlantic ocean, you will have something like this, get ready >> are they the same it. ideologically as al qaeda in iraq? >> there are experts that can talk about that. by and large what they represent is extreme for the political islamic theological movements including using violence with anybody that disagree with them. that is what is in common for all of these organizations. calling them al qaeda is loose association. a few years earlier, they invited the city terrorists in iraq to join them as well. so you get
for government. government does help a lot of people get places. we don't agree on that obviously, but -- >> dana: do you think that has s what he has been saying all along? if you compare the 2008 speech to this one, it's the same? >> bob: what i would say in this without sour grapes. in 2008 he tried to break across the gridlock and he didn't get anywhere so now he will go alone. >> eric: a lot of people on the right said he thinks he has a mandate because he was re-elected. his speech sounded like i have a mandate for the next term, the next four years. he talked about gay rights and climb change. weeping entitlement off the table. equal pay and immigration. those are things we'll hear in the next four years. it reads like a liberal agenda, top to bottom, i am going after it and getting it done. too bad, you lost, i won. looks like another victory lap. >> dana: we will get in sound bites later. the parade is still going on and the president and mrs. obama, the girls are in the viewing area. so we will continue to show you that while we get thoughts overall. when you look at the family, give me
they are afraid they will spy on them and report information back to the federal government. host: let's go back to what you said at the beginning when you talk about the politics of this. this headline -- that was in reference to what harry reid had said. some democrats backing down from an assault weapons ban. dianne feinstein but to introduce her assault weapons ban in the 113th congress. chris in washington, independence. -- independent. caller: i'm against any more legislation on guns. it's nonsense. we are back to demonizing inanimate objects. if we want to get rid of things that are deadly, ban the automobile. this is nonsense. brady.ed this with a g it did not work. it did not lower crime. that's not the issue. host: what is the issue and where do you see compromise? caller: i don't see compromise. why should this even be an issue? it is a media-driven emergency. other than that, there is none. host: the new york times front page story -- we will go next to dennis in upper marlboro, maryland, democratic caller. caller: good morning. thank you for the opportunity, first of all. the gentle
lowered their expectations -- there's always debate about what the proper role of government ought to be. i suspect it will have more of that in the coming days about what the proper role government should be -- what are our expectations? are they too low? some of my friends on the right will see the opposite -- the expectations of government are too high. talk to me about expectations -- what do we have a right to the world? >> i think it is important what they were saying about what should be done -- it is not theory, it is actually being done in countries around the world with demonstrated, proven results. every child in many countries in europe start out with that preschool. the results are that unlike this country, there is not hereditary poverty. it is proven -- this is not a theory. what you are saying about the health system is completely proven. our health system costs an extra $750 billion a year for exactly the same services that you would get in other countries. at the institute of medicine issued a report that the waste and fraud that comes from this for-profit system is 5%
, but it has to have a component of the state and government to help foster it, and the line that really stuck out to me was these truths can be self-evident, but they're not self-executing. what he made was a case for why there is an important role for the government to play to basically protect our rights but also to advance us as a society whether it's on climate change, immigration reform, bank regulations, and so on down the list. it was a progressive case, but it wasn't necessarily a big government case. saying there's a mix of -- >> let's talk about some examples. i think you know them. the right wing ideas of rights is leave me alone, i got enough guns here in this house to hold you off for a couple days anyway if the government comes in with helicopters. progressives' idea of rights is a couple young people would like to go to the university of mississippi. it took the federal troops to go in there to get them in the door. a governor named george wallace tried to stop people at the door at the university of alabama, they had to be pushed aside. that's an aggressive communitarian notio
like that. they keep it for one reason only -- so they can protect themselves against the government. that's what it's all about. host: "the new york times" editorial today weighing in saying the white house has a rare chance to propose and pushed through an agenda for public safety. the assault weapon ban should be renewed and tightened with a special emphasis on those that hold more than 10 rounds. offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray. god of the universe, we give us thanks for giving us another day. the people's house gathers today and celebrates in its gathering the wonder of our constitutional form of government. our nation has once again achieved something so often lacking in our world history, the peaceful transition of democratic government. the major change of party in control did not take place, it is still the american experience that our streets are peaceful and winners and losers of elections move on with their lives of dignity. we thank you again for the inspiration of our nation's founders and the legacy they left us with. may the member
the democratic loaf. we recognize we have to have a suspicion of government. this is why i resonate with my conservative brothers. martin luther king jr. was under fbi surveillance until the day he died. government can be oppressive, vicious, ugly, violate your rights, generate propaganda. we need that, too. government can be affirmative, if they are helping poor and working people. government can help use its power for elites. when they come together with no accountability whatsoever, not just politically, but economically. let me say this. martin luther king jr. today could be taken to jail without due process or judicial process under the national defense authorization act because he had a connection with a freedom fighter, nelson mandela. he just got off the terrorist list in 2008. he had a relation to a terrorist. under the present administration, and you can take americans to jail without due process. the black freedom movement has always been suspicious of it. we have black prisoners in their precisely because they were willing to tell the truth that was a threat and we do not talk a
security. he did call it, fiction, that all societies' ills could be cured through government alone. but it was a prelude to wonders of the collection action by which he meant government action. on gay rights, climate change. voters op regulation, immigration reform and gun control. only saying he would support the spread of democracy worldwide, which is the george w. bush freedom agenda. by failing to swear off the use of drone attacks did he say anything likely to disappoint the base on the left. the president is a man of the left. after today, the departure from the orthodoxy should fool no one. >> bret: still, you have the republican house, that stands really in the way of what could be a very liberal agenda for the progressive agenda. and in the "state of the union" address on february 12, probably get the shopping list of things that he wants to really get done. down in the weeds. to get that done you have to reach across the aisle at some point. >> you do. unless, your purpose is to make war. fight. believe the country will stand with you. with both houses in the same, in con
-business customers and others who do not know what their tax rates are going to be or what areas the government may cut back on spending. it is a difficult position for people to wait in. even if they are seen profitability and growth in their business, they are trying to get by with what they haven't been rather than commit to -- with what a house rather than commit to new investments. >> you know how much of a world of participation rate is going to play in unemployment going forward? we have seen a sort of stabilization. will it hit the bottom? and have all of the we're factors played out and now it is just demographics? >> one dindane -- one thing that surprised everybody and one of the reasons we have had a lot of progress on the unemployment rate is past years we have not seen a lot of people re-enter the labour force. participation rates have been pretty much trending down. there is some stabilization that we are seeing now and some are speculating that we might see a little more reentry, but there are varying opinions on that. some on the committee are expecting a lot of people to re- enter
franco. in those days spain had lots of fascists around, not just the government. this was a fascist and even nazis in exile were living in madrid. my next-door neighbor was a romanian nazi. we didn't speak for four years. and also there were lots of people living in madrid then who loved spanish culture as i do. at one point i call this a love letter to spain and it is. i would seek one dimming go corona walking around in my neighborhood, juan domongo pe o perro perrone. when i would see real nazis that was something else. i went to a party. i was invited by the spanish government to go to a party at his place and since he was a guy i worked with in cultural affairs i went to the party and walked in the door in the immediately spotted two people. i couldn't believe it. on one end of the room was a bug gardner who lived in spain and on the other end of the room was otto scored zany --scorzene the guy had their call his favorites folder, he was the leader of the attack on this mountaintop with gliders, partisans in italy who captured mussolini, not sure what to do in 43, and he led t
on the national mall through the association that governance the national mall. that's a bridge we'll cross when we come to it. but there are a number of civic-minded things to do if we are lucky to have access funds when it is all said and done. >> cnn. how many law enforcement agencies and officers will be involved in the security on the day of the inauguration? and also, how large of an area will be closed off with street closures? >> first, to answer your question, we cannot go into detail as to how many law enforcement officers will be present for the inauguration. and could you repeat your second question for me? >> how many agencies? >> i can't go into detail. >> how much will be closed off. >> we have road closures in effect and i can provide you with information on those. >> [inaudible question] veragets with all events that happen on the capitol complex, we train constantly to address them. as far as specific threats, i can't answer that right now, but just know that united states capitol police with our law enforcement partners have trained constantly in regards to issues that may com
the debt limit as the government faces another shut down possibly within weeks. will that happen? >> we need to stop spending. we need to reduce spending. but it would be better if we figure out how to do that in a targeted way, rather than across the board way. look what mommy is having. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is. [ bop ] [ male announcer ] could've had a v8. 100% vegetable juice, with three of your daily vegetable servings in every little bottle. of green giant vegetables it's easy to eat like a giant... ♪ and feel like a green giant. ♪ ho ho ho ♪ green giant martha: all right. there was a frightening scene after a plane blew out four tires landing. it happened at newark airport. 13 people were onboard this plane. it was a flight from rochester, new york, to newark. reports are that nobody was hurt. we'll continue to keep a look at that situation. we'll let you know if there is any information on that. looks like everybody is okay. scary situation though. bill: republican senator roy blunt said president obama was confrontational in his first term. tell
that we do what we can as a federal and as state governments to protect our citizens is primary. >> schieffer: you're going to have a pretty important job coming up here shortly once john kerry is confirmed as secretary of state. every indication is that he will be. you're going to have to appoint somebody to replace him. >> i've heard that, (laughs) >> pelley: give us a clue. >> no clues today other than it will be somebody who is aligned with the president's ageneral the, will be a good partner to the president and the majority leader, which is important. i always remind our citizens back theme the main event is not the interim appointee, it's the election of a new senator in the special election. that's what we need to focus on. >> schieffer: i take it will be a democrat? >> it will be a democrat. the. >> pelley: governor patrick, thank you for joining us. we have in the capitol rotunda a very special guest today, valerie jarrett, senior advisor to the president and i day air is the person in washington who has known the president and first lady longest, being a long-time fri
and creating an environment for businesses to invest because they think governments are being responsible, things have slowed down so much there's been so much unemployment, 11.6% in the euro zone than it's having the opposite effect. we have to find a more dalan ba approach to how we go forward. europe has a disproportionate influence of this conversation. there is a conversation particularly vis-a-vis the united states as to how much is too much and how much austerity, how much in terms of cutting back is actually enough, christine? >> really nice to see you. when you run into indiana jones, he can have his hat back. nice to see you. >> how many bars are there over the world that have pictures of you in them? >> no, i turned 28 at a davos -- last year -- and it was one of the best birthdays ever. first time i ever ran into kings and bankers and princesses. it's really an interesting .01% of the global leaders. >> with the official public swearing inform the president all done, you know that, small matter over, the really big news of the day -- what was she wearing? look at that lovely r
, there are international governing bodies or international authorities that said over them and the efforts are attempting to expand the population of countries that participate. generally, we see participation of more countries. host: looking at fourth graders, we see reading and math skills has improved and science has improvedun changed. guest: this particular grab it does not show everything. if we look across the entire distribution, we still lowest performing u.s. students with scores that have improved over time. there is a story of improvement among the subjects. this is something we also see in our national assessments. in the u.s., we have seen in mathematics and elsewhere, improvements for our younger students. host:tom lovelss, when you see these numbers, what does it tell you? guest: they bounce around from administration to administration. i think it is wise to take a longer view. i like to look at scores over a longer period of time like a decade or more. if you go back to 1995 and look at the fourth and eighth grade, the u.s. has made steady progress. i am encouraged by these scores. host:
these great people to this day's fantastic events. >> a president who says government can help improve the lives of everyday americans. president barack obama fits that description and so does fdr, franklin delano roosevelt. let's bringing in personal historian doug brinkley to talk more about this. you've said fdr has been on your mind a lot as we countdown to the second inauguration. tell us why. >> in 1933 in march when fdr famously said we have nothing to fear but fear itself, that's because we were in the great depression. people were really worried what was going to happen. due to the new deal, due to the first 100 days, the fdr created the ccc and tva and the alphabet the soup of the new deal. we started getting out of the great depression. but by the time he gave his second inaugural in 1937, we were still in it. similar to president obama, he inherited the great recession, was able to do t.a.r.p. and all of this. won re-election, yet, there are still millions of americans living in the poverty and the middle class is still struggling. you've got watch that you're not triumphan
of the national debate, but i think it's too early to make that decision. >> host: government bullies, second book by senator rand paul, how everyday americans are being harassed, abused and imprisoned by the feds. .. is a memoir and a history book. in the book you talk about your personal journey and you are very candid about your life, and you also cover new insights as a historian to the life and legacy of dr. martin luther king, jr.. what prompted you to write the book this way? >> guest: well, i wanted to write something for the anniversary and this is 50 years of my life and king's legacy and my life coincides with my coming of age, so part of it was to do those two tasks. i felt that my life had been connected to the king legacy, and i felt there was something about my life that needed to be told to understand how king impacted me and how i got involved in this amazing journey of editing team newspapers. >> host: its an excellent reading and you and buy your of the same generation, and why too was coming of age in the 60's. the book i might say was bittersweet to me because i knew dr. king,
branches of government and some of the articles of constitution coming into play, it was, really, a celebration of our government, our democracy, and our historic traditions. when it came to the president's speech that was different. i agree with what ed said and some of us said earlier, the president said, i campaigned on a bunch of issues and i intend to redeem those promises i made. i will keep the promises. there was talk of common ground but, shep, what he was saying was, common ground, coming together on his terms, whether it was support for entitlements, whether it was women's issues, gay rights, immigration reform, voting rights, gun control, he was basically saying, i won. >>shepard: you are putting women's rights and some of the others all in a partisan matter? he talked about protecting the children from newtown, the way you go about that is a matter of political debate, but you way you get women's equal pay is something for partisan debate but one side or the other does not believe that women are worth less than men because their chromosomes are different. >>chris: i
militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant hands. >> this incident will be resolved, we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with these relentless terrorists, life is not in any way precious to them. >> americans and other western workers were on as about when multiple militants attacked. the militants took hostage at this gas plant heavily armed with rocket grenades and forced some hostages to wear explosive vests. the militants may have t
to approve the $250,000 contract for his services. >> that's governments primary responsibility is to guarantee the safety and security of its people. >> reporter: the public safety committee meets at 5:30 tonight. although they plan to protest, the committee is expected to approve that contract. live in oakland, john sasaki, ktvu channel 2 news. >> we caught up with governor jerry brown and asked if he plans to provide resources to help curb violence in the city where he once served as mayor. >> i want to help where i can. oakland has to solve its own problems. the fire department, mayor, of you got to put together. >> governor brown said he'll look at what he called any reasonable request for help from oakland. he points out he's sent the highway patrol to assist oakland police in fighting crime. >> police in the northern california city of galt tonight are mourning the loss of one of their own. this happened about 11:20:30s in the farming community about 30 miles south of downtown sacramento. police say officer kevin tonk confronted the suspect. other officers moved in on the
to the president. we want of immigration reform and other governments are bringing their issues to our president. martin took his issue -- >> guest: who is stopping them? >> host: why is at? >> guest: it's one thing to say president obama is not responding. but what are we doing to put the issue to it so that we have to respond to? and to me, we are not using that leverage. everyone knows that it's the black vote -- >> host: 93%. >> guest: the latino vote that was decisive in the last election, women. each of these groups who played a role in electing him. that is why in my view when i came here for the inauguration i said in the day before the non-duration i gave a speech to the more house alums that came and i said the important day is not tomorrow. we celebrate that. the important days the day after tomorrow. what are we going to do them? and for a lot of people they went home. >> host: that's true and celebrated. it is a milestone. i never thought in my lifetime i would see a black president so it is. we have talked a great deal about the movement that we have talked very little about you. i
to the president, the comprehensive immigration reform and the governments are bringing their issues to the president. we are not bringing our issues. martin luther king's issue. >> guest: who is stopping us? it's one thing to say president obama is not responding but what are we doing to put the issue so that we have to respond? to me we are not using that leverage. everyone knows that it's the black vote. the latino vote but it was decisive in the last election. when, each of these groups that played a role, that's why in my view when i came here for the inauguration i said the day before the inauguration i give a speech and i said the important day is not tomorrow. we celebrate that. the important days the day after tomorrow. what are we going to do then and for a lot of people they went home and celebrated. >> host: it is a milestone. i never thought i would see a black president. so it is to be we've talked a great deal about the movement and very little about you but i think we are getting to know you're here in your comments. you ended dr. king's papers. there are several peep
of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that make that statement is within moments of taking the oath itself. jon meacham is the author of "thomas jefferson: the art of power" way up on the new york times best sellers list and he joins me now. i'm here
for watching "fox & friends first". >> time now for the top 5@5:00. the algerian government is expected to release more details today as the death toll rises and the hostage crisis. at least 81 people have been killed and there are reports terrorists tied to al qaeda actually worked at that bp plant which gave them detailed knowledge of the facility. one survivor says the terrorist spoke english and tried to warn him out of hiding and eventually he was able to make a break for it. >> (indiscernible) >> terrifying certainly. >> the teenaged son of a fire department chaplain is in police custody and face charges in the shooting death of his parents. his 9-year-old brother and 5 and 2-year-old sister. police say 15-year-old nehemiah greago shot each victim more than once at their home in albuquerque key. several guns were taken from the scene. >>> it looks like this home in oregon was hit by a tornado. he was just about to go to sleep the other night when an suv going 100 miles an hour crashed right into his bedroom. the car finally landed in the backyard. >> as i got right about here i he
by the demonstrations in birmingham, which revealed the police dogs dogs and the fire h. suddenly the government had to act. the first great accomplishment of lynn johnson son, that not much attention is given to, is the magnificent way he assumed the presidency. this was a nation in crisis. we had a cold war going on. in which the -- there was huge fear of russian missiles heading our way. our president had been killed. we didn't know whether it was the russians who had kill him or castro or -- it was great, great uncertainty. and johnson came to that job, reassured the nation, took the reins of government, and during that first year, he was president, passed the historic 1964 civil rights act, which outlawed official segregation in the south, made employment discrimination a crime. it was a very, very -- probably the most important advance since lincoln signed the emancipation proclaimation, and during that year, if johnson was mr. inside, and some outside, because he gave some inspirational speeches -- king kept the pressure on. whenever he thought that the congress was going to falter, that they
group of people who think this is not an appropriate function of government. i'm not one of those. that's not what this was about today. i want this money to go to the folks in the northeast. the question today was whether or not we thought it was important enough to pay for it now or whether or not we were going to pay for it later and make our children and grandchildren pay for it. that was the discussion. i think it's a fair discussion to have. >> all right. well -- but, is it not fair to also point up that in terms of some of your colleagues, there's some blatant hypocrisy? 67 republicans that voted against the $9 billion package. but 37 of them supported emergency aid following disasters in their own states. and you're one of them. the fact is, congressman, you actually received help from a disaster relief program. in 2011 you testified on a committee of small businesses and here's what you said. you said i've actually participated in disaster assistance relief. i showed up six months after i started my business one morning to find my office furniture floating in the front yard. we
and renewal this time around, but is the government broken? the whole system. and what can we do to fix it? people want washington and its politicians to work together. the politicians as yet have not been a i believe to figure out how to do that. but, you know, inaugural speeches can sometimes change the mood. you heard fdr, the only thing we have to fear. i remember when gerald ford said our long national nightmare is over. jack kennedy, ask not what you can do for your country. difference in how the nation feels about itself and about what's going on. i would say this. if there was a time when this country needed to hear a good speech and wanted to hear a good one, i think this would be the time. so let's hope we get a good one. >> of course, there was lincoln's second inaugural where he talked about the wounds of the nation. we know that the president has been working on this president for weeks and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent, is at the white house this morning with a little bit of insight on what we might hear today. >> well, good morning, scott. those closest
